Luna Stone has recreated the most hauntingly beautiful song ever. The Lunar Pop Group from
Caen released the cover of “Luka” by Suzanne Vega a month ago. And now the video has one hundred thousand views on Youtube. There are only a handful of songs that make you tear up. “Luka” by Suzanne Vega was released in 1987, and 33 years later Luna Stone covered this intense piece of music. The Lunar pop group was founded in 2018 by Léa and Mathieu. Léa’s soulful voice lends the song a sublime quality, and Mathieu’s voice glides through hers effortlessly. The original song is mostly in a monotone, but Luna Stone’s cover adds more depth to the sound.
Léa Aubert,28 is the one who leads the cover beautifully. She has graduated in Gemmology but has been passionate about music since her childhood. Léa is accompanied by Mathieu Bréant, 32, who has graduated in Management but is also equally passionate about music. Mathieu was the co-leader of The MAD CITY Group and has collaborated on various Pop Rock Projects. He has done notable work with Matmatah, Colonel Reyel, BB Brunes, Mademoiselle K, Louis Bertignac.
Mathieu and Léa’s first meeting was particularly non-existent. While Mathieu was doubtful about the release of his first single, Léa was still afraid to reveal her talent to the world. But they decided to see each other again. Their casual encounters turned into jamming sessions, and they were making music together. Soon Léa and Mathieu were doing rehearsal sessions. Mathieu was enamored by Léa’s talent. He trusted in her talent and left his group to join her. Both founded the Luna Stone in 2018.
Their musical tastes may be complementary to each other, but that is what makes their music seamless. Léa and Mathieu’s music started to earn more audience, and the regional media caught the scent of this talented duo. Luna Stone was offered the first parts of successful singer Julie Zenatti during her summer tour “Nights of Provence”, in July 2019. The Lunar Pop group got the chance to perform in front of a large audience, after which they went back to composing new songs.
Léa and Mathieu’s goal is to complete their first EP. Their focus is to make music that resonates with the listeners. They worked with Pete Martin, the famous producer who has worked with Adele, Sam Smith, and One Direction. He had invited Luna Stone for a recording session in MATRIX in November 2019. This collaboration inspired the first EP of the group.
In February 2020, Léa and Mathieu met the incredibly talented lyricist, melodist, and publisher, Francois Welgryn. He asked Luna Stone to work on a composition. Léa and Mathieu created an amazing piece that impressed Francois Welgryn who titled the single “Pop et Lunaire”. This single will be released digitally in February 2021. Luna Stone’s intentions are pure, they just want to make music.
The cover of “Luka” by Luna Stone is bound to give chills to anyone who listens to it. It holds a special place in the hearts of all those who have had a troubled childhood. Léa and Mathieu have revived the song. However, this cover is only a small taste of what the talented Lunar Pop Group has to offer. Together Lea and Mathieu can do wonders!
